Something different

Now this has got to be one of the weirdest insects I have ever come across. I have heard of walking sticks before, but had not heard of insects that look like leaves! In the photo above, a leaf insect sits on a clipboard during the annual stock take at London Zoo, London. All the zoo's keepers take part in the annual task which includes a head count of more than 600 different species living at the zoo. (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth)

That's certainly put a new leaf in my book, Stardust. Amazing insect.

Mind you, there are some American politicians who are nearly as well disguised! Cheers.

P.S. Must be about time you came to see me again?
